NY Islanders vs Montreal (By: Mulder)
Islanders defence remains the best in the NHL, at least when we look at that 2.4 GA/G, which is 1st (!) indeed in the entire NHL.
Isles are not an offensive machine whatsover, they have a weak PP and scored 2.9 goals per game over their last 10 games.
Greiss is confirmed in goal and he and Halak are the best backup goalies this season as he has a tremendous 2.26 GAA , 0.93 SV%. Against Montreal he has this season a 2.77 GAA.
Canadiens are also an physical team with a very solid 3068 CA ( 9th ), which is even better than the Wild. They have also an excellent 53.41 FF% ( 4th )< even better than the Boston Bruins.
Price is confirmed in goal who bounced back against the Red Wings with just one goal allowed, while he allowed 8 goals before that against the Ducks. But that is what great goaltenders do and he is awesome indeed: 2.59 GAA, 0.91 SV%.
Hence backing the under here.
